Large dangly earrings may have to stay in the jewelry box, but that doesn’t mean that moms must have naked lobes. There are plenty of small stud earrings that stay close to the ear, but are perfect for day-to-day wear. There are so many different combinations of metals, gemstones and other materials that can be incorporated into a small earring; you could have a pair to match each outfit. Even a simple pair of gold or silver balls can add sparkle to your outfit. Diamond studs, birthstone jewelry or single pearls are other ideal solutions for moms on the go to slip on before leaving the house.
A popular trend among moms is pieces that can be customized over time, often to reflect family milestones. This approach is usually used in necklaces and bracelets, however, with small hands around, bracelets might be a better choice for moms. If you are looking for a traditional design, Milano has a pretty silver heart charm bracelet. If you want something slightly different, some retailers offer bracelets with a flat metal or leather band that holds the charms flat on the face of the piece. By choosing a charm bracelet, you can then add on charms that chronicle the births and accomplishments of your family.
Mother’s rings are a classic way moms show their love for their children. Because this type of jewelry is usually pretty low-key, there’s no risk that a large ring will snag on fabrics. Stackable rings with children’s birthstones are a fun idea, or most jewelry stores offer a selection of styles that is sure to include something Mom would love.
Dress Up Time
Of course, every mom, no matter how busy, wants an occasional night out. For special occasions it’s great to have some more ornate pieces in your jewelry box, adding stackable options like bangles and delicate necklaces that can be layered over a simple dress or top. Make sure to have pieces in complementary color palettes to coordinate with your wardrobe and add a unique touch to any outfit.
